Arena di Verona

Verona, Italy

The Arena di Verona is the third largest Roman amphitheater after the Colosseum in Rome and the Capua Amphitheatre. With its gigantic dimensions (140 meters long and 100 meters wide), it dominates the northern part of Piazza Bra. Its excellent acoustics and fabulous location make it an ideal venue for opera performances.

Built around 30 AD, the Arena di Verona is among the best preserved amphitheaters of the Roman period. Over 30,000 spectators were accommodated here in ancient times, as they are still today. The monument was re-established as a theater during the Renaissance, and in 1913, the tradition of opera at the Arena di Verona began with a 100th anniversary production of Giuseppe Verdi's Aida on August 10, 1913.
